Ruined your new dress? Or embarrassed yourself in your office? Sweaty underarms are one of the most common problems encountered, but most people don’t know that simple solutions can help.
Are sweaty underarms related to the weather? I seem to sweat even in an Air conditioned room.
Unfortunately, the ambient weather has nothing to do with your sweat glands in your underarms. Related to your levels of stress or anxiety, these sweat glands can perspire even in cold weather conditions.
Do using sweat pads help?
Sweat pads are absorbent pads which are stuck onto clothing to absorb the moisture and prevent the sweat causing patches on your clothes. However they are cumbersome to use, and do not suit all types of clothing. A simpler solution would be to use a treatment that works on the problem itself.
I am using Antiperspirants for my underarms, but some days it is just not enough.
Antiperspirant roll ons and creams are a simple enough solution for excessive sweating of the underarms. However they need to be applied everyday to offer significant relief. Treatments such as Iontophoresis, Microneedle Radiofrequency treatment and Botox offer long relief.
I have heard of Botox treatments for sweating hands and feet, can Botox be used over the underarms as well?
Yes, Botox treatments can be used on the underarms to treat excessive sweating. The treatment has been very effective in reducing sweat secretion upto 90% and the results of a single treatment lasts anywhere between 7 months to a year. Imagine, a 15 min procedure could change your life.
